A poem whose roots can be traced to the inspirations provided by Gene Williamson.

Roof of red tiles

walls of Naples yellow

she resides there

jewel of my fancy

amid royal palms

sands of alabaster

roll of advancing tide

and crashing waves

an irresitible invite

in the inkiest nights

we touch the stars

toast Jupiter and Mars

embrace a new moon

leave a single torso

imprint in the sand

rustling dune grass

gossips our deeds

to the eavesdropping

sandpipers and crabs

each embrace drowns

distractions to silence

let them jealously gawk

those boisterous gulls

romance is a beach affair

Jon, your return on the "roll of advancing tide and crashing waves"
would be happiness enough, but I'm overwhelmed and honored by the preface to your impassioned Beach Affair. In the rush I feel in the staccato effect of the short lines of your poem I sense the crashing of the waves and the imprint of love-making on the sand...

rustling dune grass
gossips our deeds
to the eavesdropping
sandpipers and crabs

Welcome back, my friend. You return in great style. -gene.
